Still in my Pajamas!!

I know it's shocking, especially for someone my age, but I'm still in my pajamas -- actually, in my case, it's a nightgown. The thing is, it's already 2 P.M. But don't think I've been lounging around like some middle-aged lady of leisure -- no sirree! I've been marking and marking and I just just finished my profile of Meg Rosoff. And now, I'm feeling like maybe I shouldventure out into the real world. I have some errands to RUN (I'm thinking of doing them while I'm out on a run) and I have to un-shovel my car, which is pretty much buried under a small mountain of snow. Well then, that's about all I have to report about the writing life for today. Truth is,  I haven't done much writing today... guess I'm getting to that point of the semester when there's going to be more and more schoolwork to do. Oh well, sometimes I think it's better not to fight your circumstances. Which is why I've stayed in my pajamas, I mean nightgown so long today. But the sky is looking nice and blue out there. Sometimes what a writer needs most is a little fresh air!! Have a great weekend wherever you are!! Hey, I think I was so busy yesterday, I forgot to wish you all a Happy Valentine's Day. Here's something to cheer you up in case you don't have the perfect Valentine: loneliness makes for a much more interesting story than some story about having the perfect valentine!! And we readers far prefer to read about imperfect people in imperfect situations anyway. So get writing!!

Wow, 2 P.M.!! That's not fun to read when you got up at 5 A.M. ... although I did enjoy a wonderful day of skiing!
Happy (late) Valentine's Day to you too, and hopefully you'll have gotten some writing in today. Between your Journal entries, blog entries, journalism work and fiction writing, your idea of "not much writing" must be much more than that of the average person!

I hope you had a nice weekend! I didn't really celebrate Valentine's day this year, even though I have a boyfriend. He lives in Boston and is here for a few days (he arrived on Friday). His visit kind of eclipsed the whole pink-heart-kisses hype : )
